Introduction

The first prototype petrol engine was built by the Italian, Enrico Barnardi, in 1882. As you know, the combustion of fossil fuels leads to the creation of a range of pollutant gases.

In this WebQuest you will research what exactly catalysts are, Eugene Houdry who invented them and what they do. You’ll then explore how catalytic converters work, and how since their widespread introduction into the manufacturing of cars since the late 1970s they have made the air that we breathe cleaner and more healthy.  

Process

This WebQuest guides you through key ideas about catalysts and their uses. When you've completed your WebQuest research, your teacher will ask you to write a letter to the Royal Society of Chemistry explaining why you think Eugene Houdry should be awarded an Honour.
